Have you ever wondered to have plants in the kitchen?
Does your kitchen have a window that receives some amount of direct sunlight? South facing window would be best. If your kitchen window receives indirect sun you’ll need to grow plants that grow without direct sunlight.
1. Plants that CAN SURVIVE CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE AND AIR CURRENTS are best. Outdoor plants, if they are placed in a location with good ventilation and lighting can adapt easily into the kitchen, but be sure to remove them a few days abroad.
2. The kitchen is the IDEAL PLACE TO GROW HERBS. Herbs will not only decorate your kitchen but you’ll get fresh leaves handily to prepare delicious dishes. Herbs such as rosemary, lavender, basil, parsley, lemon balm, lemon grass, mint, oregano, cilantro, and thyme are easy to grow.
3. Some plant species, HAVE THE CAPACITY TO ABSORB ODORS AND PURIFY AIRand are good to grow in the kitchen, like the peace lily, jasmine, mum, geranium, mint, Boston fern, rubber plant and gerbera daisy.
4. Prefer plants that REQUIRE LITTLE CARE AND ATTENTION and adjust well to your conditions, the species of succulents and cacti are ideal to have at home as they are nearly maintenance free and do very well indoors.
5. AVOID plants that CAN GROW TO LARGE or spread a lot or those species that HAVE TOXIC COMPONENTS. Don’t grow any of these common poisonous plants like dieffenbachia, bird of paradise, kafir lily and some common poisonous flowers in your kitchen.
Plants grown indoors bring nature into the home but do you know there are plants that can help you sleep better?
1. Peace Lily
It has an ability to filter harmful toxins from the air. Apart from it looking exceptional, it also helps in getting rid of any impurities and airborne microbes that could disturb your sleep.
Prefers indirect sunlight. Water daily during summer and weekly during winter.
2. Snake Plant
It absorbs carbon dioxide while at the same time releases oxygen during nighttime, hence allowing you to achieve deep sleep. Through this process, you can expect a naturally clean and fresh air inside your bedroom.
A snake plant is a succulent and doesn’t need that much of water or light. Needs only minimal direct sunlight. Water once or twice a month, less in winter.
3. Moth Orchid
Orchids give off oxygen at night - as well as snake plants - so are a great addition to the bedroom; the moth orchid also combats toluene, which is found in shoe polish.
Prefers indirect sunlight. Water twice a week during summer and once a week during winter.
Try adding one of them in your bedroom to get a warm good night sleep.
Getting it done the right way.
Some of you might remember our wall Fiasco. We tore out a huge section of the wall underneath the front window. The water damage was the result of malfunctioning window seals, old uncleaned windows, and what we assumed was an open window during storage prior to our ownership.
We've removed the damage. We fixed the window and tested it for leaks. Not only did we run water over the window, we also went through a few rain storms. Fortunately there was no floor or roof damage that we had to repair.
Once we were certain the problem was corrected we reinsulated the wall and applied new paneling. Then we sealed the cracks with expanding foam, and next I will be putting on drywall spackle followed by wallpaper.
We have been traveling so much that functionality really took president over visual appeal. Now, as we baton down the hatches for winter we are ready to make Connie beautiful again.
No, this isn't our " forever " RV. But I would rather have it done correctly so that we have adequate insulation this winter. I also think it would be bad karma to have the next owner stumble across an old and improperly repaired problem like we did.
Today I'm working my magic on my soon to be studio wall #harrypotterstyle ! The cleaning takes up a lot of my time, but it will be worth it. Soon there will be paint🖌To be continued... Enjoy your weekend!😄 #TineCreatesStudio
I got the wallpaper from the UK and we did not have enough. So i had this white portion in the red and gray family room waiting for months, just being white. Today, i finally did it to this white portion of the wall waiting for mural art - not Sharpie art, but just Artline permanent markers. I still have to get the red color to finish it, but am more confident. Took me a bit more than an hour, just estimating proportions. Hmmm, now thinking of continuing the art to the adjacent white wall to complete the red and gray room.

Bagaimana cara memanfaatkan ruang atap dengan baik?
Pertama, jangan lupa untuk memasang jendela atap untuk menerangi ruangan. Jendela yang miring akan membuat cahaya yang masuk lebih dalam daripada jendela vertikal, dan menciptakan kesan estetis pada ruangan Anda. Selain itu, jendela yang besar dapat membuat ruangan Anda menjadi lebih luas.
Kedua, ciptakan pemisah ruangan tanpa kehilangan cahaya.
Ketiga, bawalah kehidupan ke ruangan ini. Anda bisa menggunakannya untuk ruang anak, ruang makan, atau ruang kantor, dan sebagainya.
Fungsi ruang manakah yang ingin Anda gunakan?

My living room walls literally make my life complete. 🇺🇸 I know it's sad but urban/vintage decor makes me feel sane. 😩 A lot of people have asked how we did it from a picture I posted on my story. I'm not handy at all but we followed a YouTube tutorial called "German Smearing". It cost around $130 it was an easy process with a great outcome! 😍✨🌿#houseupdate#hgtv#diywall#germansmear#housedecor#momofboys#momblogger
Punya masalah dengan ruangan nampak gelap?
Kuning adalah warna yang baik untuk digunakan pada ruang yang gelap. Warna ini bisa dipadukan dengan warna hitam, cokelat, mau pun biru tua untuk memberikan aksen dan menjadi focal point pada ruangan.
Kuning adalah warna yang melambangkan kebahagiaan dan pengetahuan. Warna ini memiliki beberapa spektrum. Ada kuning yang kuat seperti kuning lemon, ada pula kuning yang lebih lembut seperti warna cream yang dapat menambah kehangatan pada ruang tanpa terlalu mendominasi.
Bingung menentukan warna kamar anak?
Kita bisa memilih pattern/pola terlebih dahulu, kemudian menentukan warna utama. Lewat pattern, anak akan belajar mengenal bentuk dari lingkungan sekitarnya. Pattern dapat dihadirkan melalui kain pada cushion, selimut, mau pun tirai jendela. Setelah itu, warna dinding dan lantai dapat disesuaikan dengan warna pattern yang sudah kita pilih sebelumnya. Mudah bukan?
